Iron Maiden tour poster banned in Lithuania for being too scary for kids


According to Newsweek, a poster advertising Iron Maiden's upcoming concert in Lithuania has been banned because the band's Eddie mascot may frighten little kids.

A Lithuanian spokesman for concert promotion agency Live Nation said that authorities had expressed concern at the effect the poster, which features Eddie with glowing red eyes, wearing white tribal paint and holding a heart in one hand and a bloodied knife in the other, might have on children and ordered all posters be taken down immediately.

He said: "Right now, we have to decide how to carry on forward, but we must also immediately take down the posters."
